Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This unit proposes a complete overview of the future tenses by describing their usages and forms. From this detailed analysis it is relevant to absorb when each tense should be used. For instance, it is crucial to understand the difference between the going to future and the future simple when making predictions: the first is based on present evidence, whereas the second refers to spontaneous decisions.The idea of lesson planning was a very broad and abstract thing to me, so it was very helpful to see it broken down in an easy to follow format that could be adapted to virtually any lesson. I think it will be useful to think about the fact that successful teachers monitor and evaluate themselves after every lesson so that they are able to be a better teacher and have a greater impact on their students.
